70. No more so than a regular-painted rifle
What's concerning you, I believe, is that such a custom paint job is more likely to open up young shooters, especially girls, to the sport, science, and art of shooting This would result ultimately in more gun owners now and in future generations.

And this is what's really torquing you off. The continuation and perpetuation of the gun culture, which is in your opinion uncivilized and dangerous.

Having said that, I'll say that I agree with you about this. I, frankly, don't want toy guns looking real, or real guns looking like toys, although a pink AR-15 is no more of a threat to a child than a black one. I feel that it detracts from the seriousness of shooting, even thought I suspect it's unfounded.
